Kedron Brook Study

 

 

The Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission is conducting a flood resiliency and nutrient management assessment of Kedron Brook in South Woodstock and Woodstock Village. This assessment is a physical assessment of the brook and surrounding lands with a goal of improving water quality and strengthening community flood resiliency. Bear Creek Environmental, LLC (BCE) is working with the Ottauquechee Natural Resources Conservation District and Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission to conduct these surveys.

Once the complete field surveys characterize the brook, we would like to work with willing landowners to increase safety by reducing flood and erosion hazards, as well as to identify and remediate inputs of pollutants to improve water quality in the brook, which is listed by the State of Vermont as being stressed by sediment, nutrient, and E. coli pollutants. These initiatives will also save taxpayer money, help safeguard your part of the river and achieve a healthier river overall.  For more information - HERE
